If software testing team involved is not familiar with the product kind or application domain, there is a big probability that incorrect actions will be executed. For instance, if some developers only skilled with numerical computation were asked to design and execute telecommunication software systems, they may not realize the significance of making the software work within the current infrastructure, in such a way developing disparate software products.

The Importance of the Specific Software Product Knowledge

Human commonly understand the significance of knowledge of software product under development as a whole, instead of just limiting themselves to the modules or elements they are answerable for, because of the interface and interaction among various software product elements.

In a like manner, if software team do not have enough knowledge about product peculiar properties and other attributes, fault injections are very likely to happen. For instance, nowadays not very much large software projects are developed from scratch. For subsequent releases of software products, normally only a small proportion is newly executed, while the most of system elements are adapted or modified somewhat from preceding releases.

For certain software products, it is of main importance for project team, especially product designers and developers, to have an exhaustive knowledge of not only the areas they are answerable for, but also both old and new components they interplay with, to guarantee general interoperability and the proper and smooth operation for the whole system.

Such exhaustive knowledge would be helpful in averting injection of related software bugs.
